Radiology ReviewJanuary, 2009
A 33-year-old man is brought emergently to your facility. He was driving a tractor-trailer when he lost control and crashed. He was ejected from the vehicle.
Upon arrival, the patient’s vital signs are stable. He appears to have an obvious femur fracture and deep lacerations on both of his upper arms. In addition to thigh pain, he is complaining of bilateral shoulder pain.
Examination is somewhat limited due to his pain. Radiograph of the humerus is shown.
